I'm sure I've been to mass dinners that were more expensive overall but much less per person.

Not a financial firm, but an executive dinner in the Bahamas. $500 bottle of wine, $100 plates and appetizers, only 6 of us but it had to of been $300-$400/person

Wine and real wagyu beef. About $400 per person. I think there were 12 of us there

55 people at Ruth's Chris, almost $6,000.

Looking for app development advice.

I'm looking to launch an app. Could use some development tool recommendations.

Context

The app at some point should enable the ability to interface with an entry mechanism maybe via NFC or other technologies. Think key fob to access a building after hours and tags your account like a check in.

The app must also enable:
The use of a baseline algorithm that prescribes health recommendations
Artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve on the algo

I have two friends working as Associate at McKinsey willing to refer me. One is a close friend, former case partner, working at the office I want to join, and is very likely to give me a strong referral but he just joined the firm 2 months ago. Another friend is not super close but gave me a PEI mock before, she works at a different office (one of the biggest US offices) for abt 2 years, to be promoted to EM soon. She seems to be pretty involved in recruiting. Which one should I go for? Thank u!

Hello!

People working in Amazon AWS (especially sales development or lead development rep):
- how’s the culture like in AWS?
- is it a stressful environment?
- what is the pay range from this role?
- how does career path looks like?

I’ve heard mixed reviews from people around me and want to hear from the community how you all feel? Is it worth pursuing a role in FAANG or just go for unicorns and get career growth from there? (I just had my first round of interview with AWS today)
